Are there any Big 4 or middle market firms that have national tax/policy (WNTS, NTS, etc.) practices that won’t work you to death?

I think ours is pretty good deal.

Pretty sure pwc is good

Probably not Dt WNT. Whenever I work with them, they always seem to be pretty overworked. Also, generally you be barred as an attorney to work for their group, idk if that’s a barrier to you or not but figured I think it’s worth pointing out.

I’m puzzled by this since I know attorneys who work in D’s WNT.

It’s probably gonna be busy anywhere you go because of tax reform 2.0.

There’s a big difference between groups in WNTS. I think our TKM (Tax Knowledge Management) group has reasonable hours compared to other groups.

PwC’s NTS is excellent and generally won’t work you to death if you build boundaries. That said, individual experience can vary like anything based on the practice.

Partner in big 4, mid 40s. Doing okay but lack motivation as I don’t respect what we do or most of my clients. Team is decent and I feel responsible for them but not excited about consulting. Never been in the industry. Very tempted to do a start up. Have a few ideas. I would love some advice. Either how to suck it up and stay the course or being brave to try something new.
